Default 1/10th Off Road in South Africa

RC cars is huge in South Africa too. I used to race in the republic. Could Oople perhaps stick something in the Inernational section on racing in South Africa?

Their version of the BRCA below:

If it is in Pretoria, it might be at Zwartkops Model Raceway -
track below....


This track is next to a 'real' touring car track, and has the most space to hold a World's. Unless they have it somewhere nuteral and create a new track??

Looking at going to the worlds in SA ...... the track used last time is about 35 mins drive from my girlfriend's father's stables / ranch. Would make accomodation cheap!
